Demi Lovato, American singer and actress, has come out as non-binary, declaring that the pronouns “they and them” would be used for identification henceforth.
The music star broke the news in a series of posts via her Twitter page on Wednesday.
A non-binary is a term used to describe individuals who may experience a gender identity that is neither exclusively woman or man or is in between or beyond both genders.
According to the 28-year-old singer, the development followed “a lot of healing and self-reflective work.”
“Every day we wake up, we are given another opportunity & chance to be who we want & wish to be. I’ve spent the majority of my life growing in front of all of you… you’ve seen the good, the bad, and everything in between,” Lovato wrote.
“Not only has my life been a journey for myself, I was also living for those on the other side of the cameras. Today is a day I’m so happy to share more of my life with you all- I am proud to let you know that I identify as non-binary & will officially be changing my pronouns to they/them moving forward.

“This has come after a lot of healing & self-reflective work. I’m still learning & coming into myself, & I don’t claim to be an expert or a spokesperson. Sharing this with you now opens another level of vulnerability for me.”
The music star said the announcement was to encourage those who are yet to come out about their sexuality because of certain factors.
“I’m doing this for those out there that haven’t been able to share who they truly are with their loved ones. Please keep living in your truths & know I am sending so much love your way…,” she added.
Speaking earlier on ‘4D with Demi Lovato‘, her new podcast, the ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ crooner said the new identity “best represents the fluidity I feel in my gender expression.”
“I feel that this best represents the fluidity I feel in my gender expression and allows me to feel most authentic and true to the person I both know I am, and am still discovering,” she added.
